Abstract: 2 photographers eventually capture the magic moment that the world's tallest tower"-the top of Burj Dubai is hit by lightning after shooting several hours in menacing lightning storm.

 

Burj Dubai is hit by lightning
The photographers of the photo, Hawkins and Thane Bloem shoot several hours in the rain, they shoot a lot of photos and these photos even can constitute a video, capable of showing the change of skyline color from oink to blue in Dubai under the action of lightning.

 

828m-height Burj Khalifa was built in 2004 and formally opened till 2010, and it is the world's tallest building at present.
At that time, one of the construction purposes of the Burj Khalifa is to bring the title of "the world's tallest tower" back to the Middle East again. The Egyptian Khufu Pyramid has been always the world's tallest building within nearly 4000 years, and up to 1311, it was surpassed by Lincoln Cathedral, UK.

 

Burj Khalifa is still safe and sound after being hit by lightning stroke for several times
In January 2010, a Pakistani student fortunately photographed the moment that Burj Khalifa is hit by lightning, people can see several blue arc light of the lighting clearly from the photos. In December 2012, Burj Khalifa was hit by lightning stroke again, bringing incredible spectacle.

 

It is understood that the lightning away 2-3mile (about 3-5km) from the ground could generate the voltage over 100 million V averagely. But, the spire of the Burj Khalifa is casted by 4000t steel products, playing the role of lightning rod, capable of keeping the whole building away from lightning strikes. Therefore, although Burj Khalifa has experienced several times of lightning strikes, it is still safe and sound. After thunder and lightning, rainbow will appear around the Burj Khalifa. As tower body is too high, even rainbow cannot be up to the top.
